Description

1ST CONFERENCE ON PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF BUDDHISM IN WESTERN
PSYCHOLOGY. MINDFULNESS: THEORY AND PRACTICE.

The idea has been conceived in the minds of different people such as
psychotherapists, psychiatrists, translators, business people and
practicing buddhists who have come together to create a forum for a
cross-discipline discussion on important issues based on certain
Buddhist techniques such as mindfulness and contemplative approach to
psychotherapy, health care, self-development and organizations. And
now it is the right time to put in order all these ideas, and that is
why the present Conference is being held.
Mindfulness can be defined as nonjudgmental moment-to-moment
awareness. There is emerging scientific evidence supporting this great
buddhist insight about the benefits of allowing experiences rather
than suppressing or avoiding them in Western psychotherapy and applied
psychology.
Certain Buddhist techniques have already been incorporated in
modern-day psychological interventions and psychotherapies; for
example: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Dialectical Behaviour
Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance and
Commitment Therapy, Contemplative Psychotherapy.
The Conference is meant to be the platform of inspiration for
scientific research, workshops, and training programmes on mindfulness
and other Buddhist techniques. That is why the term practical
application has been used instead of theoretical and philosophical
concepts of psychology and Buddhism.
